This is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to his interview with AFP.


According to him, Russia's offensive "may consist of several waves, there was the first wave" in Kharkiv region.

The President noted that in general, the situation in Kharkiv region, where Russia has seized several border villages, is "controlled" but "not stabilized."

In particular, according to him, Russian troops penetrated 5-10 kilometers along the northeastern border before being stopped by Ukrainian troops.

"We must be sober and realize that they are going deeper into our territory. Not vice versa. And this is still their advantage," he said, adding that he still does not consider this a great success for Russia.

As for Kharkiv, Zelenskyy believes that Russian forces "want to attack" the city, although they realize that it will be "very difficult." At the same time, he said, "if this continues, we will be forced to create a security zone."
